Featured Wines

Pigato, Colle dei Bardellini, 2015
This lively dry white is produced from 100% indigenous Pigato grapes grown in the Riviera Ligure di Ponente in the western part of Liguria. Crisp and fresh with delicate aromas of fennel, sage and thyme, it is light-bodied with bright peach and apricot flavors, great acidity and a long racy finish.

Vermentino “U Munte,” Colle dei Bardellini, 2015
This bright and complex white is produced from Vermentino grapes cultivated in a high elevation, five-acre single vineyard on Monte Rosa. It has layered aromas and flavors of citrus and spice and a long silky finish.

Rosso di Montepulciano, Fattoria del Cerro, 2015
This robust and fruit forward red with a vivid, ruby red color has an intense bouquet of wild black cherry, violet and a slight vanilla undertone. It is well-balanced and elegant with a burst of luscious dark cherry fruit and soft tannic notes.
